“Oh Freedom!”: Buddhist, Christian, and African-American Liberation

“Oh, freedom, Oh, freedom, Oh freedom over me. And before I’d be a slave, I’d be buried in my grave, And go home to my Lord and be free.” African American spiritual
African American social protest songs, Buddhist traditions, and Christian mysticism all offer a path and express a longing for liberation. Kaira Jewel Lingo and Melanie Harris are both deeply informed by all three traditions. Join us for this conversation that explores engaged Buddhism, African American social protest songs, and Christian mysticism, and the importance of contemplative mindfulness practices that support us in touching freedom, coming home to ourselves, and deepening ancestral rootedness. This offering is open to everyone.
